Datura is a genus of plants in the nightshade family. There are currently nine recognized species of datura, all of which are native to the Americas. All of the species are of concern because of the effects they have on humans, particularly datura stramonium, which is the most toxic. Datura is a tall, branching, distinctive herbaceous perennial with a long, spiny stem, and can grow to 1.5 meters tall. The leaves are oppositely arranged, with serrated margins and a soft texture. The flowers are small and yellow, and are borne in clusters at the top of the stem.
